They're more expensive because you have them 'on prescription' from the opticians and unless you have a history of eye problems such as glaucoma in your family you have to pay for an eye test as well, if you do have family history then the test is free.

Jumping in late with this topic, I have good glasses, and magnifying glasses both at work and home bench. Eyes are knackered, due to welding flash.
I simply use a mobile phone, with camera and stuff it on zoom.
Works a treat, and a lovely clear image
